Mario Dominguez - Driver, Car 55

"Well, we didn't have any problem with traffic tonight! As a matter of fact, I think all the drivers were very polite out there - especially Tagliani, Papis and Jourdain. I had a great car for this qualifying session - really, it's been good since the two sessions last night. I honestly l think we had a shot at grid position in the top three but I made a mistake in the last corner of my last timed lap. I was up 2/10ths of a second at that point so I'm sure if I hadn't made that error we could have been right up there. My engineers and my crew have given me a great car though so I'm confident we'll be able to make it up in the race."

Fast Fact:

The Grand Prix of Cleveland will be Dominguez's 28th Champ Car start.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

"I think we did really well today. This weekend I've just been in recovery mode from the virus I had. The team has really been helping me get better and better. We have been working really hard and the car has been improving. The Herdez Competition team is just giving me everything I need and they are being very patient. Cleveland is a track that I've done well at in the past and a top ten qualifying spot is good. Tomorrow I expect to be better physically so things are looking up."

Fast Facts:

The Cleveland Grand Prix will be Moreno's 110th Champ Car start. He won the 2000 Grand Prix of Cleveland in convincing style from his starting position on pole.
